2. Place flour, cracked wheat, and brewer’s yeast in a large bowl, mixing with your hands or a wire whisk to loosely blend the dry ingredients.
3. Add the peanut oil, molasses, and water to the dry ingredients, mixing with a sturdy spoon until the dough is pliable. Add the wild rice and chopped liver, stirring only to mix.
4. Place the dough on a floured work surface and roll out or pat down to a thickness of 1/2 inch. Use a pizza cutter to slice horizontally and vertically through the dough to create cube shapes. As always, your biscuits’ size should be determined by your dog’s jaw span.
5. Place the biscuits on a sheet or baking pan covered with parchment paper. Bake in a preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until golden brown.


This recipe can be challenging because it has a low flour percentage. This means that the high-gluten flour portion of the ingredient list is smaller than in most other biscuits. Because it has less gluten, the dough won’t come together as easily. For this recipe, I always remind myself that the dough should hold together but have a texture and consistency closer to fudge than putty. Even when the dough is completely mixed, it may still be a little tacky. If needed,use extra flour on your work surface to avoid sticking.


Here are a couple of things to keep in mind when working with meat: 1. Always add the diced chicken to the dough last so that you don’t puree the pieces during the mixing and makeup process;
2. Don’t forget to store the finished biscuits in the refrigerator or freezer until your pet has finished them off.

Chamomile This flower has long been celebrated for its soothing properties. It’s thought to calm upset stomachs and promote drowsiness. In fact, chamomile tea is sometimes called nighty-night tea or sleepy tea because of its sleep-inducing ability. Experts say chamomile tea can also boost the immune system and fight infections associated with colds.
